Well, the Patriots have filled their open roster spot.
But they have not filled the vacancy with an experienced candidate.
The club has signed rookie wide receiver Jeremy Johnson, an undrafted free agent from SMU, the Patriots said Thursday.
Johnson (6-0, 179) caught 112 passes for 1,112 yards and six touchdowns for SMU in 2013. He caught 10 passes or more in seven games, a single-season school record. According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, Johnson tried out for the Ravens in May.
Johnson’s addition gives the Patriots 12 wide receivers under contract.
